Art journal - paper collage and paints

Art Journal - with paper collage and paints


Can't believe I've been constantly blogging lately. Lol! Despite the traveling and working; I think I managed to do quite a number of art journals, canvas art and etc.

sharing with you today an art journal using lotsa Dylusions spray inks, matte medium, and scrap papers. I have this mission to reduce my paper scraps urgently. So, I'm gonna use them in my art journals as paper collages and also mini albums later. I'm gonna do a post later on them.

Thanks for stopping by. See you next time!

Mixed media on canvas

Hello there! New mixed media on canvas from me today. Discover Your Dreams. I love doing this cos I get to play with lots and lots of paints. Metals are all from Sunset Sunrise Prima, and the flowers as well. I have used gesso, Dylusions sprays, distress paints, gel dimensional paints and texture medium.

The love shaped embelishhment is actually a polymer clay that I made myself. Will be playing with more polymer clay soon. I'm only using Martha Stewart's polymer clay and silicone moulds. Easy.

Thanks for stopping by! See ya soon!

Dabbing it with Prima chalk ink! Tutorial.

Hi there! I got out from work early today. Early to me means "on time". I normally go home around an hour past the office EOB time. I seldom drive nowadays. I'm so sick of the traffic jam now in PJ and KL. I let my husband endure this ha ha..

I just wanna share a tutorial on how you can use the Prima chalk ink. You know how they are shaped like right? Like teardrops. Or, maybe closer to an iron base { if you have done ironing before, you might agree with me on this..thee hee hee..}.

So, after buying a couple more of the new colours from Papier, I use these chalk inks to create in my art journal. I thought of a shape and dab the chalk ink onto my art journal. Once done, I traced them with a black Faber Castell below.

Simple? Yes....very very simple indeed. Just by playing with the shape of the chalk ink. Lol!

If you have them, give it a try! I'm seeing balloons now......hmmm.....

Thanks for stopping by! See ya.

Discover living in imperfection

Discover living in imperfection. That's the title I chose for this canvas. Nothing is perfect. You can try to be perfect in life but don't be let down when it's not. Because, NOBODY is PERFECT! It's true.

In this canvas, I have painted it firstly with Martha Stewart paint. Then, adhere cut-outs from Webster's Pages paper well after I did the texture paste onto the canvas with a mixture of the Martha Stewart paint. I did the face then and used scrap paper with texts on it for the hair.

I sprayed Dylusions onto the texture paste and also some gelatos to give extra dimensions. Lastly, I traced the hot air balloon with Faber Castell pen and added some glitter on it. The word stickers are from Tim Holtz's Ranger.

Thanks for stopping by!

Vote - an art journal spread

Hi there! Today is Malaysia's 13th general election. The day we all have been waiting patiently and anxiously to cast out votes. I've been waiting anxiously too. It's a 5 year once privilege that no one can take away from me. I should vote and so I did.
No matter what the outcome is tonight, I just wish for peace and unity. We are a small country and we need to stay peaceful and strong.

So then I decided to do an art journal spread to remind me of today ... AND my inked finger!

I played with Daler Rowney's acrylic
Paints, gelatos and water colors . Fun!

Thanks for stopping by!
